Best mountain out west for first visit?
I am from Ohio so we do not have any big mountains and I am able to go out west so I am trying to figure out what resort would be good for me because I love park but I am not that good at it but then I also like downhill.
Any suggestions of where to go?????
Can't tell if trolling.....
How could this be a troll in any way?
A thread with the exact same title came up the other day
hes new on here so obviously hasnt seen it. cut him some slack
Snowbird/Alta. don't waste your time any where else
he created the other account and thread
I'm not from out West so take what I say with a grain of salt.
It really depends what you want and your skill level.
If you've only skied a few times in your life and are looking for fun, I'd say Breckinridge or Park City are your best bet, most people say they're relatively flat and they both have big park scenes as well.
If you're an advanced skier who's looking for a nice challenging mountain, I'd say Vail, Alta, Jackson Hole, or Squaw. All four have big mountain scenes with Jackson Hole being the most advanced by my standards. Although these lack serious parks, I believe Vail does alright, but as far as I know the other three aren't too advanced in that realm.
For an intermediate resort with great powder and an awesome town, I'd say Steamboat. Not sure on the date, but if you go in February of 2013 you'll be able to catch the Winter Festival they hold in the town. It's really beautiful and the lights and fireworks of the hill are amazing.
aspen snowmass maybe?
but creu def just sold me going to steamboat that seems awesome
Whistler for best all around experience. Just bring a friend.
Im from ohio, and ski mad river. I took my first trip out west this spring break. We stayed in breck, and got a great deal on a cottage. The town is so much fun to walk around in, since theres more ski shops there than there is in all of ohio. We skiied at breck and keystone. Im not the best park skiier in the world, and had no problem. I would definitly do that again, and its a fun vacation for the people who arent skiing. Well worth it
Copy and pasted from the other thread, my response
there was a thread about this literally yesterday
